2021 First Aid Trainers Conference POSTPONED.
We regret to announce that March 2021 conference has been postponed until March 2022. The next Conference date is likely to be 10th March 2022.
Reasons for the postponement are due to the delay in the new ERC guideline updates that were due to announced Novmeber 2020 and of course the effects of the Covid pandemic.
The 2017 & 2019 First Aid Conferences were successful. 2019 was a great success with around 135 delegates and 20 exhibitors in attendance. Results from the survey monkey evaluations showed most people really enjoyed the mix of speakers and the networking at the event.
Most of the lectures were recorded and can be found on our YouTube site.
The conference is a chance for practitioners, trainers, and providers of first aid training to attend lectures, workshops, talks by keynote speakers and participate in networking opportunities. An exhibition with a mixture of commercial sales stands and health related voluntary sector organisations is also included, as well as experts in the field being on hand to give advice on a range of topics, both technical first aid topics, and business development advice.
The exhibition area will be a mixture of commercial sales stands, Awarding Bodies and Organisations, and health related voluntary sector organisations.
We will have experts in the field available to give advice on topics such as Quality Assurance and first aid course certification.

Aims and purpose of the First Aid Providers Conference
First Aid conference is organised by First Aid Training Co-operative. Our Directors Tom and Cory recognised there were few opportunities for first aid providers across Scotland and northern England to network and have CPD opportunities.
The result is this event, that is aimed at trying to bring together a range of providers and their trainers (large and small) to discuss the first aid training sector with each other and other relevant suppliers, Awarding Organisations/Bodies and voluntary/welfare organisations.
The first conference in 2017 was a great success and we have decided to try and run these events every two years. The events are non profit making and prices are held as low as possible. The cost covers food, venue hire and our staff time to plan, organise and deliver the event. Plus bringing together a great variety of speakers and exhibitors.
We always welcome feedback and ideas for the conference, who to invite as speakers and exhibitors too. If you have any ideas then please let us know.
First Aid Training Co-operative works differently to other first aid training businesses. Our trainers are Associate Members who often run their own first aid business. We have a variety of business models to suit different scales of operation that allows a range of companies to join as members.
